The California Supreme Court Thursday upheld the death sentence of a Valinda man who was high on PCP when he murdered a West Covina police officer in 1983.

Here’s a quote from his advertisement:
My name is Michael Jackson, I’m interested in females only. All human shade of color…Age from 25-50. A real female that was born one, not act like one. Someone who is not shy in front of the camera. I enjoy meditation, poetry, playing all sports and reading about history. All this give me power, intelligence, awareness, creativity. Mental stimulation is all I have to offer and if you have an open mind then that will be provide to you. Straightforward and honesty is a must. Let refresh in ourselves the faith that all are equal and deserve the love and sympathy of others, irrespective of their position. Don’t you think its time for you to pick up your pen and let start the process of being each others friend.
